Description

The new Queensland Senior Physics syllabus (to be implemented from 2019) will affect all aspects of teaching and learning – new teaching content, new course structure and a new approach to assessment. As Secondary Publisher of the Year 2017, Oxford University Press is committed to helping teachers and students in Queensland reach their full potential.

New Century Physics for Queensland 3E provides depth and complete coverage of the new syllabus in a format that offers extensive support for teachers and their students. This comprehensively updated edition will be available as a two-volume edition covering Units 1 & 2 (Book 1, publishing in 2018), and Units 3 & 4 (Book 2, publishing in 2019).

Key features include:

  • A Physics Toolkit which is a stand-alone reference section that explains the structure of the syllabus, supports the acquisition of key skills and provides practical tips for success in Physics
  • A Practical Manual which outlines suggested methodologies for every mandatory practical in the syllabus
  • Learning pathways which are clearly mapped directly to the syllabus to ensure complete coverage
  • Assessment support and resources which include exam preparation and practice
  • Coverage of key subject matter which is presented using clear, concise language supported by engaging visual elements and sequenced to scaffold student learning
  • Differentiated teaching which is supported by a range of appropriately levelled questions and activities for each section
  • Inquiry learning and critical thinking approaches which are clearly modelled throughout  
  • Additional digital learning resources which support teachers and students.
